Express Auto Service & Repair

Years ago, to tune up your car simply meant having your vehicle serviced periodically to keep it running at its best. However, the simple tune up of yesterday is not as sufficient for today’s modern cars. However, a “car tune up” is still necessary to maintain the performance of your vehicle and find any hidden problems.

Because newer cars are computer-controlled, a car diagnostic is now a more efficient way to tune up a car. Any potential or pending issues are indicated through a series of codes that your mechanic “reads,” to know what the appropriate service is needed.

A car tune up is a type of preventive maintenance periodically performed on a vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well. It offers the chance for you to get all of the preventive maintenance your car needs at that time. Getting a tune-up regularly will help you maintain your car's performance and extend its life.

So what does a tune up do for your car? It will typically include the replacement of several important wear-and-tear parts, such as . . .

  • Replace Air filter. Failure to replace the air filter can result in decreased performance and other problems. For example, the air filter will typically need to be replaced at least once per year. If a dirty air filter is not replaced, the engine may receive less air than it needs to run properly. If this problem is not addressed, the air-fuel mixture will continue running richer, which means there is not enough air and too much fuel in the mixture. This can ultimately result in the failure of other parts and a waste of fuel.
  • Clean or replace spark plugs. Tune-ups may also include the distributor cap and rotor, replacement of the fuel filter, oxygen sensor, PCV valve, and spark plug wires.
  • Check Operating Systems. Your vehicle may also need maintenance that is not typically included in a basic car tune-up. This includes the car brakes and clutch as well as oil and fluid levels.
  • A/C System. This should generally be checked if the tune-up is performed in the spring or in the early summer.

If you are not sure what type of maintenance your vehicle may need during a tune-up, you can check the owner's manual. Once you get into the habit of keeping track of your car's maintenance and its regular maintenance schedule, the idea of a tune-up will become comforting rather than intimidating. And it always feels good to have a properly maintained automobile.
